Yeah, I know, it’s an overly dramatic clickbait title. There is no reason whatsoever to blame Fujifilm, but my time of shifting from zooms to primes occurred in my Fujifilm days so if I figured it would get people’s attention.
When I shot Nikon, I had the 24-70mm and the 70-200mm along with a couple of other primes like the 20mm and 50mm and 90mm macro. I’d heard so much about the 50mm f/1.4 that I got one but it never quite worked for me and I battled to get anything that really stood out. The 20mm was probably one of the few primes that worked for me but I never thought to try other primes because of my experiences with the 50mm. I honestly just thought it was a “prime vs zoom” thing rather than a focal length thing.
